The Senate Tax cut bill and Budget would save Obamacare and the Dreamers?…


If you haven’t caught this in this way this story is running in the Senate ?….Stop and look….

The House tax cut bill is a straight out screw the poor and middle class period….

The Senate bill has little to do with the House bill….


Because there are reports that in their haste to get SOMETHING, excuse me…..ANYTHING passed in the next 30 days or so?

They are making promises to EACH senator they need….

HTF is this gonna work when the final vote from BOTH houses of congress needs to be made?….

The budget bill is probably gonna be connected to the tax bill…Democrats HAVE to be in on THAT vote….

Collins: Health-care fix will pass before tax bill

Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) said early Thursday that she expects legislation to lower health-care premiums to pass Congress before senators take a final vote on a $1.5 trillion tax reform bill that would repeal ObamaCare’s individual mandate….


McConnell promises Collins tax bill won’t lead to Medicare cut

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is promising the GOP tax bill, which is projected to add $1.5 trillion to the deficit over the next decade, will not result in cuts to Medicare next year.

McConnell offered the vow to Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), a key swing vote, during a Wednesday meeting in his office….


Sen. Richard Durbin (D-IL) said he is encouraging his colleagues to join him in blocking spending legislation if the legal status of “dreamers” isn’t resolved, the Washington Postreports.

“Durbin has repeatedly said in recent months that Congress needs to resolve the status of dreamers by the end of the year, but he is now the highest-ranking Democratic senator to raise the specter of a government shutdown sparked by an impasse over immigration… Durbin’s position is shared by at least four members of his caucus — Sens. Kamala Harris (D-CA), Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT).”



Right Now.?….This dog thinks there is a LESS than 50% chance there will be a new tax cut law come next year….


Senator Collins wants more folks….

A Senate Republican holdout on the GOP tax overhaul says she still has problems with the legislation.

Sen. Susan Collins of Maine says, “I have a lot of concerns that I’m trying to fix.” She spoke to reporters Thursday at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast.

She says it would be “very problematic for me” and hard for her to vote for the bill if it still includes elimination of the federal deduction for state and local taxes….

  1. Sen. John McCain says he’ll vote for Senate GOP tax plan

    (CNN)Sen. John McCain said Thursday he will support Senate Republicans’ tax plan, a major sign of progress for GOP leaders as the party barrels toward a vote on their overhaul of the US tax system by the end of the week…
    More …

  2. This giveaway to the rich will be hanged around the neck of every candidate running under the banner of the Trump Republican Party. There is no daylight left between Donald J Trump and the GOP. Make them all fucking pay!

  3. This bill is a travesty–and it is a Republican wet dream of giveaways to the rich and screw everyone else–edpecially the poor.
    So yeah, I want to see heads (figuratively) roll on this.

  4. So, it has nothing to do with Trump. It has to do with your long-standing hatred of Republicans. You of course once reacted to the 2004 election by saying you wanted Republicans to “die in a fire.” Just figuratively perhaps, but you get way too emotional, like Trump.

    Members of Congress should vote their conscience on this bill and everything else. Trump should not enter the equation when they are deciding what is right or wrong for the country. To make it only about Trump only magnifies the power he wishes he had over everyone.

    By the way, I sort of doubt Trump wants this plan to even go through. His behavior on Twitter indicates otherwise.

  5. And there is absolutely nothing Trumpian advocating for the well being of non wealthy Anericans.

    So my tone is a little strident. So?

    As Jack and I pointed out earlier supposed “heroes” Flake and Corker for all their jawboning are enabling Trump by voting for his bill. I’m done with giving enablers like them a free pass because of their “tone”.

  6. You doubt Trump wants this to go through?

    Oh gee now we’re back to the “Trump is a secret Democrat who really wants single payer” nonsense.

  7. You can oppose the bill if you think your position is correct, but I just think it is silly to extreme to demand that Members of Congress only vote against Trump, whether they think something is right for the country or not.

    You aren’t going to be voting for Republicans in any event and the nicest man or woman in the world could be a Republican President today and your vitriol wouldn’t be lessened on this.

  8. I haven’t taken a position but even if I were a Republican candidate “against it”, you wouldn’t support me. You’d want to have ads run against me calling me a child molester by association.

        1. GOP Senators Have Concerns Over Colleagues’ ‘Triggers’ in Tax Bill

          A trio of Republican senators on Wednesday raised concerns over a proposal from their GOP colleagues to include in a pending overhaul of the U.S. tax code a provision to raise tax rates if certain economic benefits are not achieved.

          But the possible inclusion of the so-called “trigger option” does not appear to be enough to lead either Sens. Thom Tillis of North Carolina, Dean Heller of Nevada or David Perdue of Georgia to vote no on the legislation….

          1. I don’t care about the happy..Happy…HAPPY reporting and comments about the tax bill this week…

            There is STILL a HUGE moutain to climb on this….

            I myself think the chances for pasaage of a final bill is LESS than 50%

            1. Sen. Susan Collins said Republican leaders have assured her that automatic cuts to entitlement programs that would be triggered if the GOP tax overhaul becomes law would be stopped.

              The reductions, which could amount to $25 billion in cuts to Medicare, would occur under the 2010 statutory pay-as-you-go law unless Congress approves a waiver….


  9. A win on this will embolden Trump, and further cement his ties to the Republican Party. If Republicans are fine with that to get tax cuts for the rich then they have earned the label of “Trump Republican”.

    As I said earlier–there is no more daylight between Trump and the Republican Party. The tumor (Trump) is entangled around the spine now and can’t be removed without paralyzing the patient (the Republican Party)

  10. Trump is going to be Trump no matter what, but if you wanted to venture possible reactions, if he “loses” that would increase the possibility he goes nuttier on Twitter, etc, as a distraction technique.

    You know my position on Trump. I wish every Republican candidate would denounce him from the highest mountain, but that doesn’t mean they should take him into account when they are performing the functions of their job if they think something is right or not.

    If he gets the best of Kim Jong Un or gets him to stand down, he might be “emboldened”, but is the alternative a good idea?

  11. While we are playing “who voted for whom back in the day” Nancy Pelosi has called for John Conyers to resign, and Joe “dick do” Barton has announced he will retire at the end of his term to work on his “health issues” (not enough time at the gym).

    As I said earlier in the week, Pelosi will make Conyers retire, and he will. Paulie could take some lessons from her on keeping his caucus in line.

  12. Conyers’ spokesman fired back angrily at Pelosi saying she didn’t elect him and she won’t tell him when to leave.

    I am glad Barton is retiring. He should start running with Keith and get in better shape.

  13. James,

    the optics of the bill being a Rich Man’s Gain is tough for Republicans…but the whole reason they elected Trump was for this Tax Cut..They have to pay their rich bosses off, if they don’t they fail…Congress will not fail on this one…I am locking it up…I was on the fence, but even the moderate guys, even the budget hawks (despite the tax cut ballooning the budget) are for this bill…It is over…

    1. We’ll see Bdog….

      Collins is bargaining for supporting Medicare and Obamacare…

      Dem will leveage the bill for Budget and Dreamers…

      And deficit hawks want more revenue that isn’t in the bill….

      On top of this?

      The Senate and House bills have NOTHING to do with each other?

      Sure looks like a slam dunk?????

  14. It will pass…because the reconciliation bill will look more like the Senate Bill than the House because each senators vote has more weight to it than the house…
